Regular expression for telephone number in field

I am using the following regular expression to make sure a telephone number is entered in a field on a form.

^\(\d{3}\) ?\d{3}( |-)?\d{4}|^\d{3}( |-)?\d{3}( |-)?\d{4}

The issue is, it only works if the telephone number is the first thing entered. I'd like to be able to allow someone to enter some text before it. like this... "my phone number is 123456789 more text here" and so on. I am basically checking for any 10 numbers for a telephone number. this works "7778889999 is my phone number"

Can someone assist? Thanks.

@ozo that did not work. I entered "aaa 2125559898" and it failed.

This is what i have in my script:
    var aNumber = /\(\d{3}\) ?\d{3}( |-)?\d{4}|^\d{3}( |-)?\d{3}( |-)?\d{4}/;
Did you remove both anchors?
